01) Child protection advocate labels sex offender register a ‘waste of money’

“Child protection advocate and independent Senate candidate Hetty Johnston says the $7.8 million announced in the federal budget this week for a National Child Sex Offenders Register is a “waste of money”.

The proposed register would allow people to see the names, known aliases, images and other personal information of known paedophiles living in the community, along with their general location.

Ms Johnston, who founded child protection organisation Bravehearts, said the proposed register would not work, and could actually cause harm through a false sense of security.

“There’s no research anywhere to say this does anything to protect children,” Ms Johnston said.”
